Digital Freedom Fund, Liberties, the European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights, the European Center for Press and Media Freedom and Ben Wagner have developed a Model Ethical Funding Policy to help solve problems with NGO funding.
On 2nd May the European Commission put a proposal for a new mechanism on the table that would allow it to stop governments receiving EU funds if they interfere with the independence of their judicial systems. This is a victory for Liberties.
As the EU begins talks on the new Multiannual Financial Framework, Liberties outlines two proposals on how to safeguard European values through the EU's budget. A model for conditionality of European funds and one for a new fund to support pro-EU NGOs.
